Education transitions

Education transitions

  • imminent introduction of the age 18 education and training participation age

  • rapidly rising youth unemployment rate

  • strong focus on improving our understanding of the drivers of education and labour market transitions

  • holistic approach to the numerous transitions young people make when moving from adolescence into adulthood

  • way in which different types of transition (in education, employment, family life and housing) interact.


Risky behaviour

Risky behaviour

  • risky or anti-social behaviours/ positive behaviours

  • how these behaviours interact with one another

  • not all young people persist in such behaviours over the long term

  • many behaviours are strongly linked with youth identity formation and social interactions

  • Costs/ benefits of different strategies

    • universal versus targeted

    • when best to intervene.


Disadvantaged and vulnerable groups

Disadvantaged and vulnerable groups

  • not all young people are affected in the same way by adversity

  • many of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups are more likely to be unemployed, to have children outside of marriage, to be socially isolated, to commit crimes, and to live in poverty

  • need for better understanding of these specific and cumulative risk effects.

  • examine in more detail how disadvantaged and vulnerable youth navigate important transitions


Cba drugs policy

CBA – drugs policy

  • evaluation of whether policies based on prevention/communication or those focused on treatment/enforcement are more cost effective

  • determine a sensible “balance of intervention”

  • CBA Methodology: review of existing literature, use of published data on costs

  • monetary values on immediate impacts of programmes through linking those impacts to longer term individual and social benefits

  • using available evidence to put estimates on these monetary values


Jobs without training

Jobs without training

  • significant numbers of young people enter jobs that have no training attached with low pay and short contracts

  • most focus on NEETs - less analysis of the JWT group

  • yet these young people are a large and important component of the youth labour market

  • they make up around two-thirds of those who leave full-time education post-16

  • poor initial job quality likely to have long-lasting effects on future employment, earnings, and skill development
